    Memory Assessment Program (MAP)

    The Memory Assessment Program (MAP) is a specially designed program that identifies the possible causes of memory loss or other problems associated with thinking or daily function. Our team includes a geriatrician/geriatric psychiatrist, neuropsychologist and licensed clinical social worker. We provide a comprehensive assessment and evaluation of the patient’s physical and medical conditions, thinking and memory, mood, functional abilities and social supports. The team then meets with the patient and family to discuss the findings, make recommendations and establish an ongoing plan of care. View the MAP brochure.

    Neuropsychological Testing

    Sometimes memory problems, difficulty concentrating or loss of ability to carry on daily activities requires more in-depth evaluation. Please call our office at 856-566-6843 to inquire about neuropsychological testing. Some insurances require a referral from the patient's primary care physician for this evaluation. When you call, our staff will request the patient's insurance coverage information and your contact information. You will receive a call from one of our neuropsychologists, who will explain the testing process and ask questions to determine if the patient is able to engage in extended evaluation and cognitive testing.

Patients and their families are also encouraged to attend a monthly support group to discuss the challenges of living with the disease with others who share a diagnosis.

    House Calls Program

    We bring the doctor’s office to your home. Our physician and nurse practitioner provide person-centered care to patients who may have a chronic illness or other health problem, which makes it difficult to leave home. This is particularly important when the patient has been discharged from a hospital or nursing home and can benefit from close follow-up care. House Calls lets us get to know our patients and their families or caregivers in the home setting, and allows us to interact with home health nurses and other therapists who are involved in the patient’s care. Discover more details about the program here or view the House Calls brochure.

    To see if you or a loved one qualifies for the Rowan Medicine House Calls Program, contact us at 856-566-6989.
